i wonder why


he said, it’s not my fault, it was the way that she walked
how she was dressed, she caused this mess
and they believed him, they let a man
harm a poor child, the world’s gone wild
and i wonder why, i wonder why, i wonder why, wonder why
out in the west, a murder to test
we see it all, the rise and the fall
why do we see, entertainment in such tragedy
our senses defiled, our world’s gone wild
and i wonder why, i wonder why, i wonder why, wonder why
and over seas, killing police
ethnic pride, and genocide
old hatreds arise again, they call us ugly americans
our freedom’s reviled, the worlds gone wild
and i wonder why, i wonder why, i wonder why, wonder why
and i wonder why, i wonder why, i wonder why, wonder why
